Summary

Mathematical Models of Thermal Conditions in Buildings provides a comprehensive discussion of the theory and practice of a mathematical simulation method for studying the thermal behavior of rooms and buildings. The book features fundamental concepts of the theory of thermal behavior, mathematical simulation, and applications of the method in solving practical problems. Several important topics are discussed: basic theoretical concepts of formulating a building's thermal behavior, methods and algorithms for simulating standard elements and the building as a whole, and practical applications for studying thermal stability during the summer and winter. Methodological foundations of formulating a mathematical simulation for computer-controlled building thermal behavior are defined. The book also examines methods for determining optimum building dimensions and orientation, considering external climatic effects, and minimizing energy consumption.
This important volume by a top Russian energy consumption specialist will be an indispensable addition to the libraries of mechanical engineers, civil engineers, and HVAC professionals.
